    The non-acoustic tracks are great, and his voice is excellent.

    later this year when i go to see him.

    I find it sad to think of Midge Ure as the support act for Howard Jones!

    here in america, nobody really knows who he is, and have probably no idea about ultravox.

    so he gets less exposure. but it makes it easier for fans to see him, if he tours.

    The first time I ever saw Midge Ure in the US he was opening for Howard Jones, back in the late '80s. I bought a Midge Ure ballcap at the merch tent, later went to get a beer and the girl working the stand asked, "Midge Ure, who are they?"

    I recently found a CD copy of Ultravox & Midge Ure - Finest. The liner notes list each song on both discs, but some of the track titles oddly have numbers in parentheses - for instance, the first track Sleepwalk has (28) next to the title. Does anyone know what these numbers mean? They have no connection to track numbers on the discs.

    Maybe the UK chart positions? If Vienna says 2 and All Stood Still 8, that's what it will be.

    Well Vienna has the parenthesis of (2) so immediately I think UK chart positions.

    Listening to... Weezer a bit more than my casual fan status and in hindsight I think the reasons I like both "Ha Ha Ha" and "Pinkerton", which I found around the same time has to be how the guitars, drums, bass, synths, vocals all just smash you in the face most of the time. The difference is one has better guitar noise and one has incredible synthesizer leads carrying the guitars

    My take away is, where can I get more of this super rough, noisy art punk/rock sound in my life

    Midge Ure - Tour 2022
    ----------------------
    Its taken me 40+ years to finally see midge ure,
    and hear some ultravox tunes live. So I had tempered
    expectations.

    He was the opening for Howard Jones, which is fine.
    He's not that well known here, so being an opener still works on
    a limited setting.

    Also, he had one other keyboard player to support him, while
    he sang and played guitar for the tracks.

    Setlist:
    --------
    1 Dear God

    2 I Remember (Death in the Afternoon)
    (Ultravox song)

    3 Reap the Wild Wind
    (Ultravox song)

    4 Fade to Grey
    (Visage song)

    5 The Man Who Sold the World
    (David Bowie cover)

    6 Vienna
    (Ultravox song)

    7 The Voice
    (Ultravox song)

    8 All Stood Still
    (Ultravox song)

    9 Hymn
    (Ultravox song)

    10 Dancing With Tears in My Eyes
    (Ultravox song)

    With Howard jones:
    1 Band Aid - Do they know its Christmas

    So, we got a good sampling of songs through his career,
    in a tight 10 set concert. He covered Ultravox, some solo songs,
    and side projects, covers.

    All in all, a good sampling. NO it was nowhere near what an
    Ultravox show would have been like. But they did a good job
    of sampling the drum tracks, and playing the main keyboard leads.

    Midges VOICE was SUPERB. It has really held up, the high notes
    were good enough, the timbre and pitch sounded great too. Sure
    he's aged. But there was enough variety, and in fact, the guitar
    work, added a more rock like sound to all of them. In fact, Hymn
    was much more rock oriented. Lots of solos throughout each song.

    So - 2 from Vienna, 2 from Rage in Eden, 2 from Quartet, 1 from Lament
    1 solo, 1 cover, 1 side project.

    Actually, it was cool hearing Do they know its christmas
    with mostly Midge singing, I actually prefer that, as I've never liked that song.

    I have to say, hearing Vienna live was a high point for me.
    Very good rendition, and faithful to the original.

    The only downsides was the hassle of getting a virtual ticket
    (without a smartphone), and getting into the venue. But I had
    a balcony seat, and the view was great.

    Very memorable night, and although it might be a long time
    before I see him again, I am glad I had this opportunity.

    Howard Jones was decent, but I've seen him a few times before.

    Local record store hardly has anything 'interesting' or different in the used bin, but yesterday I got lucky.

    Not sure I've seen this 12" single before, and it's a promo copy to boot.

    Store grades their used records very casually. This one was graded Good+, but I'd give it a VG+ or even a NM-

    Lies flat, plays great, hardly seems used at all. Not bad for $7.

    Really cool you found it out in the wild. I haven't seen any Ultravox in a record store in my life...

    Kind of wanted to see that solo tour, but a three hour drive there and back and I really don't think I wanted to see Howard Jones for the most of that time - good setlist admittedly, it's pretty neat how the relationship with Hideo worked out to make that his most popular track with only "The Man Who Sold the World"

    You're not the only one a bit confused. An unknown (unknown to me, anyway; perhaps they're better known by others here?) website called Merchbar is listing the Half-speed master 2 LP of RIE as 'in stock':

    Ultravox Rage In Eden 40th Anniversary Half-speed Master 2 LP Vinyl Record

    But if you scroll down on that listing, it says released 12/02/22, so maybe they're the ones that are confused.

    I'm visiting a local record store today (Fri 9/23) to see if he knows anything, but he's often the last to know Jack, so I'm predicting his answer ahead of time....

    Apparently both are right. The official UK store will ship in a few days. US dealers have to take longer to have the goods shipped over for distribution. Hence the Dec 2 date from importcds.com. According to AloneWithStrangers, who should know.
